Old biddies or old buddies ?

It was the monthly Eclectic Keepsakes crop with the two Karens today.'During the morning we 'did our own thing,scrapped or made cards or generally did whatever we fancied. Karen M had made some gorgeous Gerbera topped cupcakes which as always were scrummy....
...anyway - back to old biddies. I'm doing May Flaum's new class over at Big Picture Scrapbooking 'Creative Retreat'.One of her ideas today was to use a favourite colour on  a  layout. Well,I am actually not a lover of green normally but I just got the feel for it after deciding to use a photo of Deb and me together .....I had some papers left from the Gottacraft November kit and thought they'd go well.I also had some Tim Holtz white fabric flowers on netting which I inked with distress inks to make green.
Anyway , back to the story, I couldn't decide on a title - friends,buddies, old friends....then Deb came up with a classic- 'Old biddies' so after much silliness - I decided to use that as the title..well,it made us laugh!
Then it was on to Ann Freeman's class - a double layout ....
It was a lovely page to do, with a bit of cutting,a bit of stamping and lots of butterflies...The papers were the new Echo Park range...



So, a good day with good friends, good crafting and good cakes !

This makes me SO happy to see you girls together, and makes me sad that I can't be there with you. Stupid ocean...

I love both of these! The first one because of the subjects and the second because of the very striking embellishments.

Call yourself a friend and then call me an Old Biddy for the whole internet world to see???!!!! Cheek!
Was a great day though wasn't it? Even though much intricate cutting out work was needed and you know how much I love that ;-)at least we have photographic evidence that I was smiling while I did it!
